By referring to some of the most characteristic works of the Greek and the Chinese thought – from the Art of War of Sun Tzu and the History of the Peloponnesian War of Thucydides – to the Logos of Heraclitus and Lao-Tzu’s Tao, as well as by analyzing the intertemporal relations between the Byzantine and the Chinese empire, as they were manifested in different fields such as the commerce and the arts, experienced professors of History, Philosophy, Arts and Anthropology will shed light on the interaction and the closeness, direct or indirect, of the two
